Aroview: Truly epic dramatisation of the Apollo space programme - produced by Tom Hanks after the success of APOLLO 13 - which looks at the entire history of NASA's thirteen missions to send Mankind into space, orbit and the moon.
In 12 hour-long episodes, this deals succinctly with the technical, organisational and personal dramas of NASA scientists and astronauts, while not shying from the sometimes fatal disasters which beset the programme, or the Cold War subtext of the 'Space Race'. If the episodes sometimes run none-too-smoothly into the next, the overall production is impressively visualised, with excellent special f/x and performances.
